I spent one night here on a quick business trip. The motel itself is on the edge of town heading in off the highway, there is a large (and very good) roadhouse virtually across the road. The motel is all ground floor rooms, with the appearance of rammed earth walls, fitting for the area. It is not an underground motel.... More

Stayed here one night for a flying visit through for work. Overall a pleasant stay in Coober Pedy! This motel is on the edge of the main town so was very quiet with minimal traffic noise. Was greeted by a friendly lady in reception. Room was clean but basic, not overly modern, cheaper fixtures but most importantly it was clean,... More

First impressions fail to show what a gem the Mud Hut is. The reception staff were friendly, and although the hotel doesn't look much from the outside, once the key was turned the room was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern, beds very comfortable and come with the usual fridge , tea and coffee etc. The... More

I stayed here for business for three weeks recently. The accomodation is excellent with all you need plus a couple of extras that make a longer stay easier like a microwave and laundry facilities. The hospitality, friendliness and helpfulness of the Management and staff made me feel at home. Don't be fooled by other flashier looking places, over a proper... More

We spent two nights at the Mud Hut with friends touring Lake Eyre. Staff welcomed us at the airport on arrival and we experienced warm and genuine hospitality throughout our visit. Our room was large, comfortable and well appointed. The bedding was high quality and the bathroom featured a good shower. The adjective used so often in TA reviews of... More

Has and and I had a very pleasant stay at the Mud Hut. Has all the conveniences you need. Bed was great. Concierge was very helpful. Tips on dinner, we really enjoyed his recommendation. Also tips on best fuel etc. For the record, the walls aren't exactly mud. They are mud rendered brick blocks.

We stayed here for 3 nights based on previous reviews. We were not disappointed. We chose the slightly larger room with an extra bed and found it to be very spacious. The motel is built of rammed mud walls . It is the quietest and darkest room we have ever had and the temperature remains fairly constant. The dining room... More

It was quite an experience to spend one night at this motel with the funny name. The stone walls gave the room a special character. The furnitures are a bit old, the bathroom, however, was nice. The staff is friendly.
